The terminal consist of two docks: one for barges that enables the reception of logs, and the other for ocean bound vessels used for pulp exports. A large amount of the wood is supplied through barges thereby limiting heavy transports on Uruguayan roads. On both inbound and outbound sides, Montes del Plata has an exclusive logistic setting allowing a total control over the outbound worldwide shipping process while reducing the environmental impact of inbounds wood.
Having an efficient logistics chain is a key aspect for the forestry process.
Bimodal wood supply logistics combines land transport (over 300 trucks) with maritime transport: 4 barges that will depart from a modern logistics terminal located on kilometre 108 of the Uruguay River to the Punta Pereira pulp mill.
The bimodal system allows for a reduction of impacts on highways and local roads, thus avoiding accidents and significantly reducing CO2 emissions
Montes del Plata benefits from having its own integrated harbor. From a logistic perspective, this means shipping directly into the ocean at minimal costs and having full control over shipment processes.
For our customers, this means that wherever they are around the globe, we can insure excellency standards in terms of time and quality when it comes to sea transportation.
